Well I’m pleased to say I’m back again and hopefully I’m back for good. My health issues are sorted and the good news is that I’m cancer free. It’s been more than a difficult time but my Editor, who is also my son has been my absolute rock and I couldn’t thank him enough. That’s what really took it’s toll along with this Virus problem which, let’s be honest took it’s toll on everyone’s lives.
The latest Honor Maye book is finished! It’s with my Editor as we speak and now I can move on to my my next book. So here’s a small tease. Honor, John and Percy are quite happily getting on with their lives. A visit from an old school friend of Honor’s, a visit from Regina’s parents who live in India, and a Priest who begins to question his Faith suddenly bring a change to the village. Or is it change or disruption?
I’m going to be writing some stand alone novels this year. I notice I haven’t written many to be honest and I don’t want to be known only as an Author who writes series. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. There are a lot of Author’s who write some fabulous series that go into twenty or twenty one books. My beloved M.C. Beaton for one, or Marion Beaton as she was sometimes known. I used to follow Agatha Raisin. Agatha as she intended her to be. Not the Agatha Raisin that you see on tv.. M.C. Beaton is the only Author who’s death I have actually cried over. No I didn’t cry. I sobbed. If there is one thing I will remember about MY Agatha Raisin as she was supposed to be it’s that she was a heavy smoker, loved a drink and her favour phrase when she was annoyed was Snakes and Bastards !
